Title: MagiRabi in WONDERLAND
Release: November 2020
Where to Buy: Tokyo Joshi Pro Online Shop
Tokyo Joshi Pro doesn’t put out as many photobooks as Stardom, but when they do, they are always quality. This photobook is no exception, with a great spread featuring the team of Yuka Sakazaki and Mizuki, often referred to by their tag team name – MagiRabi.
There are several things that make this photobook unique and memorable, but my favorite is that they really went “all in” with the Alice in Wonderland inspired photoshoot. This was not some half-ass shoot using items from the local thrift shop. They had multiple outfits, a full set with props, and everything needed to really recreate the scenes. As far as wrestling photoshoots that take inspiration from something else, I can’t think of any examples that went as far into it as Tokyo Joshi Pro did and it made for an amazing set of pictures.
If Alice in Wonderland isn’t your vibe, that’s fine as Tokyo Joshi Pro didn’t forget about you either. In addition to the cosplay photo set, they also photographed Mizuki and Yuka Sakazaki in casual clothing and yes – lingerie as well just to make sure every fan went home happy. This includes both pictures together and separately. One of the advantages of the photobook being 80 pages is they had plenty of room to ensure there is something in the photobook for everyone. For myself, I really enjoy the variety. It would have been fine if they put out a lingerie photobook, or a more casual photobook, or a cosplay photobook, but instead they went all out and did all three in one large presentation. In a lot of ways its the perfect photobook, and the chemistry that Yuka and Mizuki have helps everything appear authentic and not forced.
Overall, an A+ photobook and one I can easily recommend. Here is a sample of pictures from the photobook:
